My impression is that everybody who does preconfigured trust anchors uses the Mozilla set. I am not clear on how many people believe "every member of the mozilla set is trustworthy". It seems like tricky, unpleasant and dangerous business to deviate from the mozilla set. So I lean to a question in the installer (and a command-line program) to configure and deconfigure those, and not just silently doing it. I don't see why prestaging mozilla-rootcerts-openssl and mozilla-rootcerts packages is bad, but one could also have the same code/contents in base vs pkgsrc and not drag in anything pkgsrc, which seems better.
